    Hello all im Sean and new to this forum

    as title suggests i just sold my kawasaki z1000 and now after what i should have purchased all along...another blade.
    my first bike was a rrw blade that died when a old lady rear ended me,then a 2003 r1 which seemed to lack any real character that the blade had......3 years away from bikes and i bought the z1000 (impulse buy) 3 months later i sold it as the upright position does not suit me so with a 6k budget what do you guys suggest?
    many thanks

    Depends if it is private or dealer. I'd say between 6 and 6.5k
